Today is also ending--
at the bottom of the snowstorm
the gigantic sun


chocolate Yule log
dusted with icing sugar -
snow covered hills
Christmas lights -
cherry blossom
still in bloom.

through this path

no one comes unheard

leaves separately frozen

chilled air penetrate

loosen tension

and my brain relax

yellow code

yellow code –
roofs flying over
the city

Diana Teneva
packy snow
I'll carve diem
into snowmen
full snow moon
the slowness of shadows
caught in branches

A month of haiku poems by Alan Summers at Cornell University, Mann Library, USA:

Haiga 203

hvidt forneden
mørke foroven
spor i den lyse nat
White below
darkness above
in the bright night

a weather-wound cloud
pulls in the sun -
spring swallowed

a crisp sheet of cloud
slips over the sun -
spring forestalled

a song of daybreak
"birdie, birdie, birdie" -
spring surrendered

no whisper of sleds
nor scraping of shovels
the snow simply rained

cold moon

cold moon

on the swing still swinging

a child’s shoe

hladan mjesec

na ljuljački se još ljulja

dječja cipelica

Diana Teneva

Honorable mention in  
A leaf
boldly floats downstream
unaware of
the guided current
Trees sway together;

Wind roars around snowed mountain;

Hens cluck nervously.


let me amuse myself
by counting snowflakes
by the window
a curious neighbor spies
by my door and it's boring
..circa 2009..(C)2013 Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Harmony
From the deep
emerging green
melting ice

Crows morning discussion
temporarily stopped
when the street lights went out
In the darkest corners
hidden secrets
no soul without corners
The wind is restless,
It blows sunshine up the road
And into my face.

Through high misted clouds
Opal moon shines on the snow;
Tracing tree shadows.

Rephrasing haiku 534

Shadow trees
outlined by snow
in silent night


Dark trees
marked with snowlines
in silent night
sne markerer linjerne
i den stille nat

Black snowbird

In snow covered bush
playing hide-and-seek
a Blackbird

After I wrote this and title it, I found that a “snowbird” when talking about people is a term, among others, for people who have a second home in warmer locate in winter.


leafless now
they face us and we know
they're cold
there are no coats for them
yet, more of us will not  rebloom
..Sat., Jan. 12, 2013..(C)2013 Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Harmony, reaching
into the poet's mind

ripened slice of light
unwraps the world from darkness
freeing a new year


it  takes a while
for them to clear this storm's
mounds of snow...
I met her on such a wintry
day--we were so happy then
..Tuesday, Jan., 8, 2013..(C)2013 Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Harmony; reaching
into the poet's mind

the morning enters
without a knock
